When players complain about their salary, they are most certainly not thinking one little bit about "most people". And I don't blame them. It's a pride thing. If you compare yourself to someone and they are not as "good" as you are, then you're going to be upset if they make more money than you. Period. It doesn't matter if you're talking about two people making $30,000 a year or two MLB players making $10 million a year. Nobody likes the idea of being paid less than someone equally (or less) qualified.
I've always said about my career that I don't care how much money I make, as long as it's the most. I don't care if I make $50,000 or $1 million as long as none of my peers are making more.
